Unforgettable wedding day at outstanding venue!

The BCPA hosted my "Rustic elegance" wedding in February 2020 and I was beyond impressed with their professionalism, expertise, preparation and execution of the day. The venue has everything you need: ceremony and cocktail hour space at their beautiful outdoor garden terrace and a reception space at the Porter Riverview Ballroom which has stunning views of downtown Ft Lauderdale and the New River. It was a perfect haven for everyone on our special day.

I live out of state and the BCPA team was always accommodating with my geographical constraints and time schedule. They helped conceptualize and deliver on my vision without any undue stress in planning and were very respectful of our budget. They also have wonderful relationships with local vendors for any additional needs. They were able to arrange a musical ensemble for the ceremony/cocktail hour and a fantastic band for the reception. I felt extremely confident with their team each time we met or had email correspondences.

On the day of, everything was flawless, and it was a dream walking into the reception space. My husband and I were arranged a private dinner which was one of the most memorable moments of the evening (highly recommend) and we were able to just soak everything in. The food was stellar - we did 4 different food stations (Tuscan station, Sushi & Ramen, Steakhouse and Latin Connection) and my guests were floored with the selection and freedom to indulge as they pleased!

I cannot express enough gratitude and give enough applause to everyone at the BCPA events team. Without hesitation I would recommend the BCPA for any bride - they will recreate any vision you have and will take every effort to make sure your wedding day is unforgettable. Special thanks to Vinny, Kirstie and their team! Thank you all again!! -T.C.

The best venue hands down!

I am so happy that we chose Broward Center for Performing Arts as our wedding venue. They were very covid safe and followed CDC guidelines going above and beyond to make me feel comfortable with my special requests. I was completely spoiled on my wedding day. They answered all my questions weeks before the wedding and made time for us to see them and the venue multiple times before our date to make sure we were on the same page. They have many rooms and all were great options! Originally, we were supposed to have an outdoor wedding but due to the rain we had to change it to indoors. There were three different rooms for me to choose from and I just had to let them know the day before. It took a lot of the stress out of an already stressful situation. Kirstie was amazing! Anything we wanted to have for our wedding she made it possible and did everything she could to make me a happy bride. She even had a curling iron for me to curl my hair right before the ceremony!! She was my go-to person. Ally was with me throughout the whole day and was just as amazing. She was taking us around places to take pictures and showing us all the best spots. I am so glad that I had her with me throughout the day because she wanted nothing more than to make my day special and perfect for me. All of the staff did a great job and I cannot stress how happy they made me and the great job that they did. Brad from Artisan Caterers is the caterer there and all my guests could not stop talking about how amazing the food was. It would be a mistake to not choose the Broward Center for Performing Arts as a venue for your event.

Exceptional

I planned my son's wedding and from start to finish it was a delight working with the team at the Broward Center. Our wedding coordinator was hands down the most professional, creative and detailed person I've ever worked with.
